Hi, I am developing a very advanced artificial intelligence system. I am currently thinking about implementing sound recognition in the system. I have already coded a .wav reading function, since sounds will be presented in this format. Now I need some suggestions with the actual processing of the data. Any suggestions will be much appreciated. The system is very much based on neurobiology, and almost any neurally plausible organization can be implemented in my AI system. I am now investigating some of the important mechanisms employed by the ear and brain to process auditory data. What kinds of signal processing is done to uniquely identify different sounds? And specifically, how are different pronouncements of the same word, recognized as the same word by the brain, even if the actual audio data is very different? Thank you, Marius Myburg.
